  3. Stonehenge Rathayatra 20 June 2011

Borehamwood Carnival

The Hare Krishna won the first prize again in the carnival – and as everyone knows it’s not the participation that counts. For devotees from around the world reading this article and thinking we couldn’t do this, we don’t have big temples. Please take note that there are no temple ashram devotees at the carnival. Very seldom do we have temple ashram devotees coming to these events or on our Saturday night Hari Namas. If you can get the congregation together you have a powerful army.

Crawley Rathayatra

This Rathayatra is a perfect example of a nama hatta group “walking the talk”. Everything is organised by the local devotees. The permission, the prasad and the stage program, the logistics, stewards, the media and advertising. We cook the prasad and bring the cart and Deities. All glories to the Crawley devotees they will surely get Srila Prabhupada’s mercy.

Stonehenge Midnight Rathayatra

It doesn’t get any better than this. Summer Solstice festival – we were the only group invited to this festival by the “English Heritage Foundation”. So as we entered the site the police stopped us and to my surprise they directed the van away from the general traffic and right up to the best location. Then with 20,000 people in the dark, a real problem for security – yet they opened all the barriers and Lord Jaganath rode right up to the stones.


Hare Krishna mixed with Pagans

Pagans mixed with druids

Legal highs and class A’s mixed

With alcoholic fluids

Drumming circles mixed with chanting

All types of spiritual seekers

Heard Hare Krishna Hare Rama

Come wafting through our speakers

As reds and golden yellow mixed

With pink in the dawn sky

Philosophers and hedonists

Unite in asking why

Everyone saw Jaganath

His cart was brightly lit

Someone said I’m seeing things

I think it’s time to quit

Rathayatra is the most famous festival in India. The above mentioned festivals are special festivals in India. So many peoples celebrates this very enthusiastically. When we visited to India there was Khajuraho festival running in Madhya pradesh.
